Kathy Mattea “The L & N Don't Stop Here Anymore”
from Coal (Captain Potato 2008) —A classic from the pen of Jean Ritchie. Railroads and coal mining have always gone together.

Connie Smith “Ain't You Even Gonna Cry”

Miss Leslie and Her Juke-Jointers “Cry, Cry, Cry”
from Honky Tonk Happy Hour (Zero Records 2006) —This was a hit for Connie Smith back in the '60s and Connie is one of Miss Leslie's musical heroes. Leslie has a new release coming out this summer.


Brennen Leigh “Sleeping with the Devil”
from The Box (self 2010) —I'd love to see a new release from Brennen but she's so darn busy as an in-demand session and guest player.


Iris DeMent “Mama's Opry”
from Infamous Angel (Warner Bros. 1992) —The voice that was too country for country stations--but not KDHX.


Joni Harms “Swing”
from Cowgirl Dreams (Warner Nashville 1998) —From out Oregon way, Joni still lives and works on her great-grandfather's ranch he built in the mid-18th century.


Elana James “Goodbye Liza Jane”

The Carper Family “Can't Shake the Sands of Texas from My Shoes”
from Back When (self 2012) —The Carper Family has a new release coming out in the next couple of months. Good news that. Better news is we might get to see them in STL in May.

Susanna Van Tassel “Closing Time”

Kacey Musgraves “It Is What It Is”

Melba Montgomery “I Turn Up Missing Again”

Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard “Mary Johnson”
from Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerard (Rounder www.rounder.com 1998) —One that Alice wrote. I sure do miss Hazel. I'll bet she might have joined the UMWA workers marching down Market Street a few weeks ago as Mr. Peabody hauled away their pension benefits.

Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line “Party Line”
from Carnival (Blue Pig Music 2013) —No, it isn't a political statement. Ask your grandparents about a party line. Our ring was "two shorts" when I was growing up.
